The Benefits of Working With a Law Firm When Filing a Disability Claim

If you are disabled, you may be eligible for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, the process to file a claim and actually get the benefits you’re entitled to is complicated, and many claims are initially denied due to simple errors. Between overwhelming paperwork and a confusing claims process, many people decide it’s not worth the hassle to file for disability. 

At The Law Offices of Michael Hartup, we understand how intimidating it can be to file a disability claim. We’re committed to helping Tennessee residents get the benefits they deserve. When you work with our office, we’ll walk you through every step from the initial claim to an appeal (if necessary). Working with us can make the entire process far less stressful.

Why Should You Work With a Law Firm? 

You aren’t required to work with a lawyer to file a disability claim. However, doing so is the best choice for many people. An experienced disability attorney understands the claims process and can prevent you from making common mistakes

A lawyer can make sure your claim has all the necessary supporting paperwork. Another advantage a lawyer brings to the table is knowledge of the rules and regulations that govern disability benefits. They can help you understand if your condition qualifies for disability and what sort of benefits you may be eligible for.

Finally, working with a law firm can simplify the appeals process if your initial claim is denied. There are several steps to go through to appeal your denied claim, and handling them alone can be daunting. An attorney can make the process much quicker and easier for you.
